Im so sorry to say this but worst restaurant food experience ever I had.

The food was what I ordered totally different with photo from instagram.

No taste, no balance.

The set menus work a treat, though it is quite easy to rack up a significant bill on the wines as there's not a lot at under £50/bottle. The best wine we found was the Calusari Pinot Noir from Romania, which is an outstanding wine for the price. Really enjoyed the chargrilled prawns and hanger steak. Only downside was the total cost for four of us: having opted for the fixed price OpenTable offer of £29 for three courses and a cocktail, we finished the evening with a bill of just over £380!

The restaurant was great! We went for my sisters birthday and she loved it! The kid drinks were great. The names of the juices are like cocktails but non alcoholic. It’s a perfect combination of good food and good drinks. Overall the restaurant was outstanding. I certainly recommend a visit to this amazing restaurant when you visit London!

Absolutely fine Sunday lunch with very good service and lovely staff but lacked a bit of personality for a Sunday lunch venue. Felt a bit like eating in a hotel restaurant. I might try again during the week but won’t be racing to return.

My second visit to Tredwells and much less enjoyable than the first. My scallop starter was fine but my friends duck raviolo was lacking flavour. We then both had roasted halibut which was unfortunately over cooked and dry. When a waiter asked how we had liked our food I was explaining that the fish was dry. In the middle of my sentence he just turned and walked away. Not the behaviour I would have expected at a restaurant of this level.

While our server was very good and friendly, the food did not live up to the previous reviews. Food was OK. My steaks did have great flavor but was tough - too bad. Very noisy with a party upstairs echoing throughout the restaurant - hard surfaces. The pictures on opentable do NOT match the main floor - the only floor we saw. While the bar tender and our server did an outstanding job, the food is what a restaurant is all about - and there are too many other restaurants to try before going back to Tredwells.

This was a return visit to Tredwells but I have to say it was nowhere near as good as our previous experience. The main course was fish which was covered in peanuts and accompanied by broccoli which also had a nut sauce - I can't imagine why the chef thought that peanuts were good with fish - it was not great and also the fish was dry and not well cooked.
We will try this restaurant again in the hope that this was just a bad day - very disappointing.

Overall the food was lovely but the service wasn’t great. We were seated in the basement and it felt a bit dingy and unwelcoming. We asked to be moved and we were moved to a much better table on the top floor. Whilst the restaurant is attractive I didn’t feel it was cosy. It was frustrating that the set menu did not show allergens and I had to cross reference with the main menu. The wine we ordered was not pleasant. We asked to change this which was not a problem however the waiter did not seem happy about this and we had to apologise a number of times as we felt we offended him. I didn’t feel that this restaurant lived up to my expectations.

Had a really nice impromptu late lunch here on Saturday.
We took advantage of the three courses and a cocktail for £29.
I wasn't a huge fan of the rhubarb dessert - I felt that the rhubarb was far too hard but the lamb chop main course made up for it. I also had a very interesting starter of cod cheeks with BBQ and Kimchee.
I would recommend to other diners for sure. The signature cocktail was also very nice!

This was my second visit to Tredwells, and both times the food was sensational and the service very good. The first time I hat the Bavette steak accompanied by truffle mac n cheese. It was hearty and comforting and indulgent. The second time I opted for the plant-based 5-course tasting menu, which was as cleverly crafted as it was delicious.

However, there is such a thing as over-attentive waiting staff, and with 3 servers for our table of two, there were what felt like far too many interruptions on the more recent visit. It was a first date. We were trying to get to know each other but could barely start a conversation before someone came to check if we were ok. We were asked three times, by two waiters, in the space of two minutes if we wanted anything else. (Coffee, etc). In spite of this, we still had to ask twice for the bill.

Nevertheless, we had a very pleasurable evening and I will definitely be returning to Tredwells, but perhaps the staff could try to be a little more observant and a little less keen to please - it’s actually a little bit frustrating!

We came here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had the 3 course menu with cocktail for £29. Not bad value at all but sides were not included and the cocktails are tiny so you'll need to spend another £20 each on top of the usual menu which I think is quite cheeky.
Anyway, starters and mains were great and we loved the truffle mac n cheese. Let down slightly by the dessert which I think missed the mark slightly. My partner had the chouxnut which was a bit stodgy. I had the rhubarb and cheesecake mousse. It was fine, but I wouldn't really order again.
Service was attentive but the temperature in the restaurant was a little chilly.
Worth a visit but don't expect to be blown away.

We went to Tredwells to celebrate an anniversary. Initially we could not decide between the two tasting menus but went for the non vegetarian and the sommelier’s wine choice. It did not disappoint. When we noticed that their was a significant missing ingredient in our second dish they were replaced. The sommelier gave a brief introduction to each wine. The outstanding two dishes was the cheese on a Parkin and the dessert which had an amazing set of strong and contrasting flavours. The hard surfaces of tiles and a full energetic first floor dining room made conversation sometimes a struggle but the tables were well separated. Yes I would go again.

We were there for a pre theatre dinner. We arrived before 6.opm but were served our starter around 6.40pm. The starter of Jersey Royals was very average (bordering on tasteless), the Lamb Chop 'saved the day' but the desserts were also disappointing .

This is not the first time I have visited the restaurant but it will probably be the last.

For a Marcus Wareing restaurant it was a very underwhelming experience (and quite expensive with the wine!)
